Two Stakes Organized in Phenom Penh & Pictorial Preparation Day

President Moon sent a letter to all the missionaries in Cambodia announcing that two stakes were officially organized in Phnom Penh on Sunday, the Phnom Penh Cambodia North Stake and Phnom Penh Cambodia South Stake. It's a great milestone for the members in Cambodia! 
President Moon also announced that last week Church leaders were notified by the government officials in Vietnam that they have approved the application for official recognition for the church's Interim Representative Committee--a step in eventually receiving full recognition for our church in Vietnam.

Best Week Ever!

Well this has been another great week. I was worried that last week was just a lucky week,  but this week has been even better. We are doing really well. Church was great. So much depends on church. The whole week you are just telling members, less actives, and investigators the importance of church and that you want them today and the climax of the week is church! But yesterday was great. Few highlights: Overall attendance was high, which is always great. An really old awesome member came back, and he was in a super good mood and attitude. We had a recent convert, who has not been to church since 2013 come! Yay! I have been working on her ever since I came to Battambang.

May The Fourth Be With You!

This week we received 13 new investigators, and 2 new families.  We have been working really hard to contact people. And it's been awesome! We have this card with a picture of baptism and on the back it has a date, time and number. When we contact people we show them the card and explain a little about baptism, and ask if we can come back and explain a little more.  If they say yes we get an exact date and time write it down and show up later, and it is working really well. Cambodians are very nice which also helps.
